Google's Email message "Labels" map to folders
Posted by - NA - on 29 June 2009 01:33 PM
This issue occurs when Google users enable NotifyLink folder mirroring.
A labeled message in the Google Inbox will appear on the device in a folder carrying the label name (if that folder/label has been selected for mirroring).  However, the message will also still appear in the device Inbox.

Google does not have multiple Email folders, so a message is not moved, but simply labeled.  However, via IMAP the message appears in two different folders - the Inbox and the label-named folder (when NotifyLink folder mirroring is enabled and the folder/label is selected for mirroring).
